How do I become part of a class-action lawsuit?

In most instances, you need not do anything. In other words, you won’t be asked to “join” a class-action lawsuit. Instead, you become a party to the lawsuit by not “opting-out.” (There are times that you may be asked to become a member, or “opt-in” for a class-action lawsuit, but these instances are rare.)
Typically a drug will be recalled in some large-scale fashion and law firms will seek out people who have suffered a type of injury as a result of taking the drug. Any resulting settlement from the lawsuit will then be shared by other members in your particular class-action group.
